Sections 3 seem to be about deadlocks instead. Is it because I’m using a different edition of the textbook?
Yes, most likely. My reading list refers to the 3rd Edition.
Hi, I refer to slide 26. As you have mentioned that every time when we need to do a swap, we will take the contiguous process and put it inside the physical memory and change the base. Don’t we need to change/ set the limit too?
Yes, that goes without saying..
Thank you! :)
Hi Professor, just a quick check. 64-bit addresses would mean that there are 2^64 bytes right?
